$50 gets you free shipping

I'm debating placing an order with KnitPicks for a 47" cable to assist in the button band when I get there. Actually, I know I'm going to order the cable and two US #1 harmony needles; I'm really debating bumping the order over $50 to get the free shipping. Eh, it's only $3 for the shipping on the needles I want and I can't justify ordering more yarn or a pattern book when I'm not using patterns so much lately.

So, I think I've decided to go with a set-in sleeve. Which is good, because I've reached the point of armhole bind off on the back. Boy, that sure looks orange. I had to use the flash, though. Every pic I took without flash was way too blurry. Boy, the flash sure picks up the nubs of the tweed and Molly's fur!
Poor B had a scare this morning. I think it was a nightmare induced by the traffic on the street behind us. I was getting out of the shower and he yelled "Mommy, I love you too." (lately, he's been adding the"too" even if he says it first) So, I told him I loved him. It was weird because he's usually still asleep when I get out of the shower and he generally doesn't talk to us when he wakes up unless he needs to potty. He sings and chatters, but not directed to me or Hubby. Then he said that he was scared by the horn and asked if he could get up. So he spent the time Hubby and I usually cuddle watching the news chattering at us while we tried to watch the news. He was in fine spirits afterwards. He didn't share too many details about the horn except that it was yellow. He did say when asked, that it was from a truck. I hate that he's having bad dreams.

Aww, poor B! I hope he's done with the bad dreams.

FWIW, my free shipping took over 10 days. If you're in a rush, the $3 is so worth it.
